Building Embedded Linux Systems,
This review is from: Building Embedded Linux Systems (Paperback)
I found this book to give a well-rounded discussion of (as the title says) building embedded LINUX systems. The author does a good job presenting the material and nicely presents concepts that non-experts can quickly grasp. The book covers: basic concepts, hardware support, development tools, kernel considerations, and file management topics. It also covers bootloader, networking, and debugging tools. I would have preferred more coverage on the debugging tools. Yaghmour did a good job in explaining his ideas. I did not need to refer to other LINUX books to have terminology explained. Chapter 7 was particularly insightful in its discussion of memory storage (flash) devices.
The book is very practical (hand's on) in its approach. I recommend it highly for the person developing embedded LINUX systems. I don't think that you'll be disappointed.
